For brides and grooms in search of a stellar setting, a destination wedding at a picture postcard-perfect Caribbean resort is a daydream realized. With upscale amenities, gorgeous beaches, and the best vantage points for viewing the sunset, such properties offer an easy segue to a spectacular honeymoon.
The Excellence Collection of aptly named properties stands tall in its abilities to transport guests to an otherworld of luxury, pampering, and haven-like comfort in stunning tropical settings. For example, in Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic's most tantalizing bit of beach-land, the stellar brand offers two resorts, equally pampering, pretty and romance-perfect: adults-only Excellence Punta Cana and family-friendly Finest, Punta Cana, which also has an adults-only section. The all-inclusive retreats are so abundant with places to eat, things to do, activities to conquer, chairs to lounge on, and people to meet, that one stay never quite satisfies the spirit. Read on to find out why we endorse the idea of hosting a wedding and honeymooning in the same hot spot.
All the wedding planning and events before the ceremony have been exhausting. Now it's your time, so indulge. At the Finest, you can choose between numerous wedding venues, including gazebos, terraces, the beach, and a salon. Additionally, the resort offers complete wedding and honeymoon packages. What you don't do during wedding week, you'll do twice during your honeymoon.
Find Your Favorite Restaurant and Repeat the Fun
Ever notice how you finally find the restaurant you like at a resort and then it's time go? Doing your wedding and your honeymoon at The Finest gives you plenty of time to try every eatery on property, a range that includes Italian, Mexican, steak, and lobster, Japanese, and more.
Spend More Time Hanging Out With Loved Ones
No doubt, there's a surreal feeling after any wedding, where you feel like you didn't get to talk to anyone you love. Holding both events in one place slows the pace and allows for more interaction and the chance to make even more memories together.
